Chances are good you don’t recognize your own career credibility, yet it plays a huge role in your career. Credibility is what gets you promoted, it’s what sends opportunities your way and not someone else's way.
Like the Force in Star Wars, CareerKred has always been with you. It started the moment you took your first job and you’ve been building it or losing it ever since.
Until the internet came along the only people who could acknowledge your CareerKred were the people within the four walls of your building, your office, or your company. The exception to this was if you worked directly with clients and customers.
So unless you had an insider connection to another company, your CareerKred was largely non-existent to anyone outside of your company.
